Hello champions and welcome to the ChessMood team!
We all are from different countries, different ages, have different professions... But one thing bounds us - the passion for chess.
Champions, we'll grow together and keep a warm relationship in our team.
Please tell a bit about yourself in this post.
Here you can find sparring partners.
You can write, for example,
"Hey guys, my name is Bob, I'm from the USA, my rating is 2000 I'm looking for a sparring partner."
Or even more specific like "I just finished the Caro-Kann course and I'm looking someone to play a friendly sparring games".
Hopefully, you'll find good friends too.
Hello ChessMood Family!
Now I'm adding model games in each section of our course, so you have a better understanding of the positions. Some of them, I'll also add in the book, that I'm writing now (later about that.)
Why did I write this post? :)
If you played nice and instructive games with our ChessMood openings - please post here.
I would be happy to add them as well.
The first course, where I'm going to add model games, gonna be the Scotch game. If you want to make a research in your games, start from the Scotch :)
from 1000-1400 solve tactics most of the time , do yusupov build up your series 1,2,3 , silman endgame book
from 1400-1800 solve much harder tactics , solve studies do yusupov boost up your series 1,2,3 take any old classical book according to your style
This game I'll comment tomorrow, changing a places with a game 50.
Here are the questions.
1. Where to develop the light square bishop?
a. e2 b. d3 c. b5
2. I know that from this position you can guess, that Bb5, but maybe in the game was a wrong move :) :)
Question - How to continue? White to move.
3. White to move. What about Ng7?
Feel free to share your thoughts :)
I've been struggling lately with the kings indian Nbd7 line. After 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 0-0 5. Be2 d6 6. Nf3 e5 7. 0-0 Nbd7 here is the critical point where i am searching for a plan for white. If u have a suggestion Avetik or someone who plays d4 let me know. Tx guys have a great day!
Hello Coach and Chessmood family, I find it very difficult to utilise my light square bishop in accelerated Dragon line. I develop my pieces including tv concept so my g7 bishop is active, shuffle my my pieces around so they are doing a job, but my light square bishop isnt doing much. Its either on c8 or blocked by a knight. How can I make use of my light square bishop? Thank you.
I was studying this position and here are my thoughts.
Black to play so I focused to make idea from Black's side.
I thought black got knight pair so it's good to keep position closed so I thought e5 is the right idea. Another point of e5 is to open up the light square bishop on c8
..1 e5 if d5 then Rd8 c4 Ne5 this was my thought
The chapter is about pawn levers.
Do u think my thoughts of direct e5 without Rd8 first was right.
In the book it was recommended to play Rd8 first and then author said e5 will be unstoppable.
Please guide me where I am making mistakes in understanding positions?
Hello ChessMood family !
I'm back from Open Wine Medoc (near Bordeaux/France). I finished 4 on 63 players. I was lucky all along the Open, and I learn much about the openings. My tactics training and the right mood help me a lot. I didn't give up playing the openings, even if I don't feel too comfortable. I lost my first scotch in the third round, but I was rewarded in the last round fighting for a Prize (1/4 of my weight in good Bordeaux wine) playing the same opening. So thanks to GM Avetik and all ChessMood family. Feel free to give me any advices... Cogro Guys !
